Some 2-hundred South Korean nationals are slated to arrive at Incheon International Airport this afternoon, on a government-chartered plane from Italy, getting them out of one of the world's most dangerous hotspots for coronavirus.
Before boarding, passengers will undergo fever and respiratory checks.
Sources say the majority of them are students in their 20s and 30s studying abroad.
This is the second flight arranged to bring South Korean nationals back from the virus-stricken country.
309 South Korean nationals arrived back on Wednesday afternoon.
They have been moved to designated facilities for quarantine.
